Live Like A Local
Aspen Colorado Resort Vacations
Sure, you've always wanted to visit Aspen, but what will you do when you get there? We want you to live the dream like a true Aspen local so we've compiled some favorite local activities. But the real question is: can you keep up?
A local favorite for breakfast, Poppycocks has been around for years for a reason. *Order the Blueberry Granola Pancakes or Lox… or both
Check out The Big Wrap, an Aspen favorite which dishes up great salads and wraps. *Make sure you try their homemade tortilla chips!
Date night? We’re pretty sure our very own restaurant, Plato’s, is a no brainer.
Johnny McGuire’s a hole in the wall with hot sandwiches and cookies the size of your head
Creperie du Village European-rustic and cozy; crepes, fondue and character
Jimmy’s is both a hot spot for their tequila bar and delicious Moscow Mules, but the food is pretty killer, too.*Saturday night is Salsa Night - iOle!
Campo de Fiori is by far the best Italian restaurant in town and has been for years. *Frutti di Mare alla Griglia is a MUST
L’Hostaria is busy every night and for good reason! Sit at the bar for a fantastic bar menu or wine and dine in the main room, both will prove to be ‘wins’
Little Annie’s is an iconic Aspen bar and has been a local favorite since 1972. *$3 for a shot and a beer make it a no-brainer for at least one round!
Justice Snow’s serves $4 wine, creative mixed drinks. *The deep fried pickle that is a MUST
Campo de Fiori has a bar scene that is notorious for those infamous Aspen cougars
Eric’s has 4 different bars all in one – enough said
Ajax Tavern is the best place to sit on the patio and do some great people watching *Truffle Fries, Truffle Fries, Truffle Fries
39 Degrees is Aspen’s wild après-ski scene. Champagne Supernova? Whiskey Ginger? No matter your beverage of choice, always bring your bathing suit! Trust us.
Smuggler Mountain is a great place for views of Aspen and the entire Roaring Fork Valley
Lost Man Loop
Grab your bike (our Health Club has complimentary bike rentals for guests) and cruise the Rio Grande Trail. 53 miles from Glenwood to Aspen, it’s perfect for a short loop from the Meadows or a ride down to the famed Woody Creek Tavern, always a local favorite
Wander Aspen’s Saturday Farmer’s Market located in downtown Aspen, every Saturday until mid-October 8am – 3pm *One should always grab a bag of the kettle corn
Grab some homemade ice cream from Paradise Bakery, located in the heart of downtown Aspen, and just walk the streets. Aspen in the evenings is beautiful.
